Walking through San Francisco's Chinatown, my friend being a foreigner who hasn't seen much of the Chinese culture save for the few Chinese red cross members like me filling in the blanks for him. He got fascinated with all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners(You can't blame him as what we eat differs from what they have ok? Basically we Chinese can even eat snakes right from the pot). He turns around one of the corner and saw a building with the sign "Saul Dumbrowski's Chinese Laundry".
"Saul Dumbrowski?" he muses. "How the heck does that fit in here? Saul doesn't even sound Chinese(as he remembers that I told him before we have s surname such as Lee, Chan or whatever la)". My friend being the curious cat walks into the shop and sees an old Chinese gentleman behind the counter. Below is the conversation between them.
Friend : How did this place get a name like "Saul Dumbrowski's Chinese Laundry?
Old man : Is name of owner
Friend : Well, who and where is the owner?
Old man : Me, is right here
Friend : You? How did you ever get a name like Saul Dumbrowski?
Old man : Is simple. Many, many year ago when come to this country, stand in line at Documentation Center. Man in front is Jewish gentleman from Poland. Lady look at him and go, 'What your name?' He say, 'Saul Dumbrowski.' Then she look at me and go, 'What your name?' I say, 'Sam Ting.'
Still don't get the joke? CTRL+A
Sam Ting = SAME THING la. -_-"
